Thomas Kettering, BHS 1956
Thomas Kettering January 30, 1938 - June 8, 2013
Tom was a Burbank native, moving to San Diego county in 1997, after retiring from a 30 year career with the Walt Disney Company. He slipped away quietly in the comfort of family after a 10 1/2 year battle with cancer. Tom has fought this uphill battle with dignity and courage; we’ve all admired his positive spirit. Tom is known for his zest of life, love for his family and friends, his many hobbies and passions.
He is survived by his wife, Diane, son Keith, daughters Kathy Irwin and Michelle Sequeira, two grandchildren (soon to be three), "brother" and "sister" Jonas and Linda Williams and MANY friends.
A celebration of Tom’s life will be held Thursday, June 13th, 11:00 a.m. at the First Presbyterian Church of Oceanside, 2001 El Camino Real, Oceanside, CA. In lieu of flowers, the family suggest donations be made in memory of Tom, to the First Presbyterian Church of Oceanside, or to Vitas Hospice, www.vitascommunityconnection.org.
